It is believed that a very major cause that has stirred up the Sallu-Hrithik rivalry was none other than Shahrukh Khan. Hrithik's proximity to Shahrukh Khan proved to be a hindrance. But destiny has something else planned for both the actors.
It was actually Hrithik's first move in 2011, when he went to Salman's home to wish him luck before he flew out of the country for his nerve surgery. The gesture surprised many. But it did manage to make its mark.
December 2011: Hrithik, who was dubbing for Agneepath at YRF Studios, spotted Aditya Chopra sitting outside Salman's van with none other than... Salman himself. Salman was shooting for his film Ek Tha Tiger. Hrithik immediately went and spoke to them. If our source is to be believed, the conversation lasted for over an hour.
The growing friendship strengthened after Salman and Hrithik accidentally bumped into each other on this UAE bound aircraft. While Salman was accompanied with his family, Hrithik was on his way to join his wife, kids and friends Arjun Rampal, Shahrukh Khan and Ritesh Sidhwani.
But despite such miraculous and friendly encounters, why did Sallu miyaan not allow Hrithik to step in the Bigg Boss 5 finale?
